Hey, I'm Kendra

This is me prepping soil on my urban lot in Harrisburg with a favorite tool of mine, the broadfork. This is just one of many practical, hands-on things you could learn about during the EarthCare Summit.

But I'm more excited about the idea of you learning from other local ecology focused community members, activists, teachers and speakers - real humans, doing real grounded work, inspired by their relationship with Nature and making an impact for our bio-region, especially the Susquehanna River and the Chesapeake Bay.

The EarthCare Summit is a way to educate us all, increase our capacity for ecologically beneficial action, and therefore increase our impact.

Enjoy the 2023 MidAtlantic EarthCare Summit!
